YES. AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME, BLACK LIVES DO MATTER MORE

An imperfect analogy I once heard to help explain why to the idiots who don't understand — if you'll forgive a gross over-simplification of the issue.
  1. Saying "But...ALL LIVES MATTER"...
  2. Is a little like if one person's house is on fire...
  3. And the fire department shows up to try and put out the fire...
  4. But the people in the surrounding houses, the people whose houses are decidedly FINE...
  5. Start belly-aching about "How come no one's pouring water on OUR houses?"
  6. Which, to reiterate, ARE NOT CURRENTLY IN DANGER OF BURNING TO THE GROUND.
  7. Am I saying the burning house is more important than the other houses?
  8. Yes. As long as it's still on fire, it sure as hell is.
  9. So shut the fuck up.
